Combat Tisp and Tactics

Alisha is a pretty good character who can deal with almost all sorts of enemies on her own. However, since she can’t master the armatus, her fighting prowess is limited when it comes to stronger hellion battles.

She tends to have an overall slow recovery speed, but her ability to displace enemies and her incredible range make her an excellent opportunistic character.

There are plenty of AoE skills to take advantage of such as Spinning Top and Skewering Spear, which can hit multiple enemies with a single arte.

Much like Sorey, Alisha is blessed with a lot of elemental attacks, giving her luxury to tackle a lot of different elemental oriented foes and exploit enemy weaknesses.

However, she’s not exactly a status inducing monster like Sorey, and unlike him is better used to deal damage to multiple enemies instead of single targets.

Alisha’s departure in later parts of the game prevent her from being a long term option. However, if you’re playing the Alisha DLC or start a NG+, you’ll truly enjoy her powerful Mystic Artes.

Since she cannot armatize, her Mystic Artes become the most powerful asset for her to make up the damage difference between herself and her Shepherd. Using Axcell skill equipment for her in the DLC or NG+ makes her an excellent character.
